CALS Comm Workshops

Empowering You to Share the CALS Story

Our departments have great stories. Working together, we can make sure the world hears them.

What are CALS Comm Workshops and who should attend?

Once a month, the CALS Communications team hosts a workshop for all CALS departmental communicators and communications enthusiasts. These sessions focus on best practices, tips and tools to ensure we are on-brand and effective in telling our story.

We also seek to provide a space for networking and discussion between communicators who might not otherwise come in contact.

Busy-Day Communications Strategy

Our goal is to make your life easier while making sure your department’s amazing stories get the coverage they deserve.

Ask for headshots with all of these, maybe write a brief introduction, and you have good content with less than 30 minutes of work.



The best way to save time is to plan and know the CALS message.
